    Around the holidays, I received a BlackBerry Torch 9800 as a gift. It works well enough, but it does not meet my needs and expectations. If there is any possible way for me to dual boot Android with my BlackBerry software, I'd love to know. Anyone who helps me in the right direction will my my respect and admiration forever.:)

    I wouldn't count on it. Something like that wouldn't just be something that you click to run and install anyway. It would require quite a bit of knowledge on the part of the person performing the mod. If you want an Android device then get an Android device.

    RIM doesn't publish the hardware specs or driver info for their phones, so it would be extremely difficult (read: not going to happen) for somebody to build a kernel that could drive that hardware. It generally takes the resources of the people designing the phone to get that right. Unless RIM suddenly decides that an Android release for their hardware is a good idea I'm afraid you're out of luck.
